Jib it. Jib it good.
The Nitro Swindle Snowboard answers the cries of rail rats who are tired of paying too much for snowboards they end up destroying anyway. Nitro left out the bells and whistles, and focused on the important stuff like a durable Powercore II core, and extra-beefy Railkiller edges designed to withstand even the most botched gap-to attempts. Add in a buttery flex and Zero-camber shape that locks into presses, blunts, and slides, and you end up with a serious street and park jibbing machine.
- NEW Whiplash core profiling is thinner between the inserts and beefier under your feet, for max ollie power and locked-in press tricks
- Zero-camber flat profile for a poppy yet forgiving ride that's somewhere between rocker and camber
- Powercore II tip-to-tail wood core for durability and pop
- Bi-Lite laminate for a buttery flex and lots of independent foot control
- Railkiller edges are thicker than normal to resist damage from rails, boxes, and rocks
- Low-maintenance Scratch & Rip base wears in like your skate deck

Sick Park Board!
Zero camber shape is my personal favorite because of the way it locks onto rails and I feel that it's more predictable than other hybrid cambers. The Swindle seems pretty durable so far (no surprise there), but the best thing about this board in my opinion is the Superstache technology/reflex core profile, which in English means they thinned out the core between the inserts and thickened it underfoot. The theory is that it gives you a playful feel, while still giving you insane pop and control on landings or at higher speeds and hell... it works! I couldn't believe the pop on this thing! For a softer board, it also held its own in powder (although definitely not its specialty) when Seven Springs had a couple little stashes in their glades too. If you love rails, boxes, buttering around, and don't frequently hit jumps over 30ft, this board is perfect. If you want a more of a jump board or park board that excels at all mountain though, opt for the Rook, Team Gullwing, or T1. I own the TG and Rook as well
Solid all-mountain fun board
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I rode the 2009 152cm for a couple days, and loved every minute of it. Super responsive, fast, poppy, controlled... all around great shredder. I rode it on mostly groomers and some park, it performed well all over the mountain. I usually ride a 152cm skate banana and comparatively this one held an edge like a dream and was much less noodley so it stuck landings far better, but the zero-camber profile provided a decent amount of pop and flex for buttering on the flats and shooting off the jumps. no complaints. As for bombing runs, this little puppy can hold an edge for hours and was faster than a hedgehog in a cabbagepatch.

One of the best rail boards out there!
Bryan Fox, Austin Smith, Justin Bennee are just some of the Nitro team riders that ride the Swindle when they are cruising the park or out filming in the streets. This board was made to specifically help you ride better in the park and it does with its Zero Camber - Rail Killer Edges -Whiplash Core!
